EOS Bodies / Re: A Rundown of Canon at Photokina

I think, whether you are impressed by a camera or not is also a subjective thing. Everytime I pick my good old 7D up after using my father's 5DIII, I'm amazed by its IQ, I love the colors, the handling is the best I've ever seen, the noise is with RAW and Lr no problem... We have different approaches to what is impressive...
But I don't think the GH5 will be here before the 7DII nor have I said that Canon has no "flaws" (like the mentioned 18mp sensor), I just wanted to show that Canon is not the only one staying with old technologies  ;)

Subjective indeed!

Sony a 50 MP camera.
Samsung with a NX1 that has fantastic specs.

Jumps on the 1" P&S waggon and shows a boring 7D evolution.  :(

That´s not the same company that impressed me with great innovativ products in the past.

Canon always was the technology leader in the Camera biz.
Today it´s just making good enough Cameras with mediocre sensors. :(

If not for the Lenses, why would you buy into Canon these days?

As working Pro there are maybe some reasons, i can see that.
But for Amateur or Enthusiast Canon has lost much of it´s appeal.

It´s sad.

I know 4 working pro's who shoot mostly in advertising in a studio who have moved away from Canon. I stay with Canon because it is the best for my kind of photography - fast action in bad light.

Cool image. If it were mine, I'd probably paint some warmth over the foreground. It seems too cool compared to the blazing sky. Maybe add a little more contrast to the foreground, too.

I'd love to do a photo safari some day...

Yes you must do a photo safari. It is therapeutic! And it can be done with various budgets. Let me know if you need any advice. :)

Thank you Mackguyver and Fametuer.
Excellent suggestions! I will implement.

Friends does this photo look like it has too much chroma? Does it seem over processed?

Pls pls do advice, I think this photo has potential but I do not want to kill it with over processing. Thx in advance.

I will be delighted with the new focus points.
10 fps is great.
Wish it has 1 stop better ISO IQ but I think it will be half of that.
Better DR at low ISO would be welcome.

The new battery should be good too!

I had seen someone post photos of night sky and had used a software to get lots of stars pop out.
Does anyone remember that post? I would appreciate being pointed to that.

Well done! I personally prefer night club shots without on camera flash.

"whatever"! Really? Some facts thrown your way and you disregard it….

Oh... my bad.  My observations in the field have been proven wrong (Thanks LeeJay!), and I have revised my "wish list" for a new 7D.

Sanj... I appreciate all the facts that are thrown around here.  Just look at the 50+ page thread on the 7D started a few days ago.  There are so many facts in there that prove every other fact wrong that nothing could possibly be true.

I'm not disregarding the facts, I'm just stating that my opinions for a great APS-C camera are based on my own field operation.  Truthfully, I don't care about the physics.  What I care about is generating high quality images and through my own experience, I believe that my "wish list" for a great APS-C camera help create cleaner more usable files at high ISO.  I'm not about to debate what makes a pixel produce better noise.  If canon can make a 24mp APS-C camera that produces excellent quality, low ISO noise at ISO 3200... I don't care what goes into it.  In my experience, this would be a more realistic achievement if that crop sensor was 12 or 16MP.

Whokay! :)

Sunny day is the key point. 7D.

I know of a professional photographer who is using Sony 7 (do not know which version) after selling his Nikon 800

A 12mp sensor would have better high ISO performance,

No, it wouldn't.  This myth just won't go away.

utilize the center of lens elements,

Which is wrong on two levels - every pixel uses all of the lens elements.  You may have meant "image circle" instead of lens elements.  Secondly, using the "sweet spot" is nearly always detrimental compared to using the entire image circle because of increased enlargement.

And also, a 12 mp crop sensor is 150% of the "reach" and 16mp is 200% of the "reach"... As you put it.

"Reach" means "resolving power" and it goes with the square of pixel count.  You want to double resolving power?  You need four times as many pixels.

Whatever... my opinions are derived from "field" observation... and interestingly I have found that most things being equal, larger pixels translate to higher ISO noise usability.... and that the center of images are always sharper and have less distortion than the edges.  But who needs field observations when we have all of these "theoretical" photographers here on the forum to prove us all wrong??

"whatever"! Really? Some facts thrown your way and you disregard it….

Photography Technique / Re: Is RAW worth it?
« on: August 29, 2014, 11:38:01 AM »
Depends upon the end use mostly. I shoot my friends birthdays on JPEG and serious (!) work on RAW. It all depends upon your needs…
Very many cameras including my Fuji XE2 give perfect JPEGs.

Canon General / Re: Some wait for 7d2 other do great without it.
« on: August 29, 2014, 11:22:24 AM »
While it is a very cool video, not sure what the 7D2 has to do with it, other than simply trying to sucker people in and/or start a fight.   ???

Fight? Naaaaa. I am peace loving guy.. I mention 7d2 because just a mention of it's rumor sets internet ablaze. Am stressing that there are people greater than me who are out there pushing photography and limits of their inexpensive gear while we fill pages of rumors. :)
